In every country on the planet there are elements within and outside the halls of power that work to subvert the government and inflict damage on the population for a self-serving cause. In countries like Libya, Muammar Gaddafi perpetrated untold horrors on his fellow countrymen to maintain his hold on power that eventually led to his overthrow and death at the hands of the people who could tolerate no more death and destruction from a despotic leader. The election of Barack Obama has exposed a class of Americans who are as evil as Gaddafi and now that their veil of secrecy has been lifted, they have overtly stated their goal to destroy America and its citizens at any cost.
The recent tea party mandate that their members sign a pledge to abstain from hiring new employees to protest President Obama’s attempt to create jobs and raise taxes on the wealthiest 2% of Americans is, although despicable, the latest overt representation of government subversion and continued torture of the American people the Republican Party has perpetrated quietly since Ronald Reagan was president. The Tea Party Nation sent out a rambling, anti-American letter to approximately 30,000 members that ended with the pledge: “I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped. I hereby declare that my job creation potential is now ceased.” If the American people had any reservations that the teabaggers and their masters in the Republican Party were deliberately sabotaging the economy for political reasons, this letter should quell any misgivings that America is perilously close to falling to corporate greed at the hands of conservatives and religious fundamentalists.
In the letter to members, several resolutions accuse President Obama of seizing dictatorial power to bypass Congress with the help of Senate Democrats, Hollywood, Leftists, Progressive Socialists, and the liberal media. The teabagger leaders claimed the Senate has refused to impeach the leaders who are committing treason by advancing an “anti-business, an anti-free market, and an anti-capitalist (anti-individual rights and property ownership) agenda.” The assertions can best be translated; Obama is not doing what we demand. Of course, the we in this instance are libertarians, Christian fundamentalists, and Republicans owned and operated by corporations and wealthy neo-conservatives. The teabaggers are under the control of the Koch brothers who most certainly penned the letter because it reflects the mission statement of Koch Industries and their secret policy meetings for wealthy industrialists and Republicans’ corporate masters.
By now, it is hardly a secret that Republicans have taken every step to subvert the economy to portray President Obama as an ineffective leader. It is also no secret that Republicans are intent on transforming the country into a plutocracy with theocratic rulers who will privatize the government to further enrich the industrialists’ wealth and power. There is absolutely nothing Republicans have done since President Obama’s inauguration that helps the American people, and in fact, they have used every means possible to cause pain and suffering for 98% of the population. A brief perusal of the current Republican presidential candidates exposes more anti-American policies that if enacted, will elevate the wealthy class to a position of power this country has never witnessed.
Willard Romney has proposed giving the wealthy more obscene tax breaks that will add nearly $6 trillion to the national deficit and send the middle class and poor Americans into abject poverty with no hope of ever escaping. Herman Cain, a Koch brothers’ devotee and recipient of support from Americans for Prosperity (AFP) credits a “businessman who served on an AFP advisory board with helping devise his “9-9-9″ plan to rewrite the nation’s tax code.” The Koch brothers’ front group, AFP, promotes and lobbies for lower taxes, less government regulation, and nearly no government spending. Other Republican presidential hopefuls Michele Bachmann and Richard Perry have promoted eliminating corporate taxes, environmental regulations, and government spending except for corporate and oil industry entitlement programs. All of the Republican hopefuls have offered nothing for 98% of the American people except bans on contraception, anti-gay legislation, and tax increases to fund the wealthy’s tax cuts.
The teabaggers and Republicans are out to effectively subject the American people to a theocratic plutocracy that will send the majority of Americans into poverty. The Republican-controlled House has attempted to cut funding to programs that help the majority of Americans as well as stifle job creation to keep more Americans unemployed and destitute. They are no better than the evil dictator Muammar Gaddafi who tortured his own people to maintain his hold on power. Although the Libertarians masquerading as Republicans cannot yet inflict physical torture on the American people, they are doing the next best thing by literally starving millions of Americans to death to gain total control of the government. However, the Occupy Wall Street movement may be on the verge of thwarting Republicans’ efforts by bringing attention to the corporate malfeasance the GOP has enabled over the past thirty years.
The teabagger letter mentioned above singles out the Occupy Wall Street movement and worldwide anti-corporate sentiment as a threat to America’s corporatist takeover and cite them as yet another reason to cease all hiring. There are over 14 million unemployed Americans who are being punished by Republicans and teabaggers because an African American man is president who refuses to follow the commandments of Libertarians and neo-conservatives who have no other desire than to collapse the government. Make no mistake, the goal of collapsing this country’s government it two-fold; first, to install a theocratic leadership and second, to sell ownership of the people’s government to private corporations who will control the military, schools, transportation system, Supreme Court, and both houses of Congress. At that point, there will be nothing standing in the way of physical torture, imprisonment, indoctrination, and subjection of every person in America who is not one of the 400 wealthy families who control 90% of the nation’s wealth.
For now though, their plans are in jeopardy from the Occupy Wall Street movement and Americans who are sick of banks, Wall Street investors, and corporations torturing 99% of the population. After thirty years of corporate control with Republican support, America stands at the threshold of becoming a true democracy like Libya and Egypt. The conservatives had better hope that they fare better than Muammar Gaddafi because if they continue torturing Americans, they will face the same fate as their comrade-in-torture, and they will deserve to suffer the same brutal demise.
